When to use lower fan speed in heating mode?

When to use lower fan speed in heating mode?

It might make sense to have your fan speed at maximum all the time. However, in heating mode this isn’t always the case. During the winter months it is best to allow your heat pump to run at a lower fan setting and spread heat out more evenly over a longer period of time.

Why is my furnace blower running at low speed?

Also if you have a high efficiency furnace, there is more of a chance to have the secondary heat exchanger plug up rather than the A/C coil. You can also have a blower motor issue. The motor can be faulty or seizing up causing it to not spin fast enough to move enough air through the furnace.

When does the a / C fan only come out warm?

When the fan is set to the highest setting, it only comes out warm. This happens regardless of a/c or max a/c setting, regardless … When the a/c fan is on any setting other than the highest setting the air comes out cold. When the fan is set to the highest setting, it only comes out warm.

Why is my blower motor not spinning fast?

If its a fixed speed motor and your getting power to it but its not spinning fast enough it could possibly be a bad blower motor. If you decide to change out the blower motor, make sure to get the appropriate replacement capacitor to go with it.

Why does my furnace fan run so slow?

So apparently, the fan speeds up when it encounters a lack of airflow (when sitting on the floor, for example), then slows down when it gets plenty of air. I assume this is a design choice, and not an accident (ie, nothing is actually broken).

When does a Furnace Fan need to blow?

When your thermostat is set to AUTO, your furnace fan should blow only when your furnace is in the middle of a heating cycle.

How do you set the speed of a furnace blower?

This isn’t always the case, though, so it’s important to check the speed with the manometer. Attach the wire that is emitting the speed you want — low, medium or high — to the coolant terminal. The wire you choose should be connected to the bottom right of the coolant terminal.

Is there a blower motor that does not work?

Blower motor does not work on 1 or 2 speeds. I have yet to attempt repair. I replaced the blower motor resistor but selection 4 (high) don’t work. Motor makes a squealing noise for a few minutes but stops on (3). But still blows. Blower only works on high.
